“Great Experience But Please Dont Forget Your Manners!!!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Before I Give My Review Let Me Just Say To All People Going To The Drive In:

-People driving around in the middle of the movie with your headlights BEAMING onto the screen...Turn them off please!!! I understand you are trying to light your way to find a parking spot but you are ruining the movie with your headlights shining directly at it.
-And 2nd...If you have a huge truck w/a tunnel cover or are planning on backing into the spot & open your back hatch to sit back there to watch the movie...PLEASEEEEE BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGSSS better yet...please park in the back if your wanting to do that. You WILLL be blocking smaller cars parked behind you so please be considerate.

Now...Onto My Actual Review Since I Have Gotten The Main Ranting Outta The Way LOL

This is such a great place when you get passed the MASSS amount of people with no manners lol. We drove from Santa Clarita Valley to partake in such a great experience that is hard to find. We stopped & got movie munchies at the Farmer Boy about 15 mins from the drive in which was so delicious!!! To be able to sit in your car enjoying the night air while grubbin on WHATEVER you want to bring in...while watching not one but TWO epic movies for the small price of $7 is pretty awesome!!! The food is reasonably priced if you decide to hit up the snack bar but ladies BEWAREEEEE the bathroom is sooooo disgusting but seeing the huge line of ladies waiting in line to pee with the men standing waiting for us is kinda funny. Lucky boys get a trough to pee in (kinda grottie but convienent)

My experience overall was great..i wish there was someone there tho to walk around & tell people to either move (if blocking a smaller car in front of them) & turn off headlights. It CLEARLY states at the ticket box that larger trucks should park in the back...we had to move because of a truck parked in front of us and rudley put up his tunnel cover to block us...wish there was someone to regulate that nonsense haha...but other then that it was great!!! Definetly an experience you cant beat & we will be back may times despite the rude people. THanks for keeping Tiki Alive & remember movie goers....Mind Your Manners!!! (^__^)

“Best of the drive-ins in Southern Cali”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

There are not many drive-in theaters around the area but this one is the best one to go to. Others in Riverside and City of Industry are ghetto and always have a haze of weed smoke lingering around. The theater was recently upgraded to digital format and the sound is good through your car radio. The snack bar has good options and they even have a gift shop where they sell cool glow in the dark stuff for the kids. The theater offers a great value with a double feature of first run movies. If your looking for something fun to do as a family, I recommend this Mission Tiki. You should arrive at least a half hour before showtime to beat the lines entering the venue.
